I love this podcast. Kendra speaks to her audience like only a best friend can. She gives you the truth even if it can sting but only to help you be a better person, a better mom. I love her honesty and mission of positivity.

Description

It's ok, you can admit it. Sometimes motherhood seems less like the sweetness of a Pamper's commercial and more like a scene out of Jaws. Here at the Mother Like a Boss Podcast, we dive into the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood and modern homemaking, with honest conversations, tips, strategies and tools.

Episode Date
Be loving, set boundaries
10:16

Boundaries feel difficult to set, but how much more difficult are you making your relationships by NOT setting boundaries? Whether it's at home, with your children, at work or with difficult family members, healthy boundaries are about showing love for others and ourselves.

How I actually keep my house clean in under 30 minutes a day
35:17

I'm still shocked at how controversial the topic of house cleaning can be in the motherhood community and how dead-set we all are that it has to be the worst, most exhausting thing in the world. It's no wonder how many side-eyes I get when I say I spend only 30 minutes a day cleaning my house.

With two kids, a business and a slew of other responsibilities, I'm pretty uninterested in spending my precious moments cleaning inefficiently. I want to give you back your minutes and allow you to spend less time cleaning and more time living.

What if you said "no" more often?
07:47

In a world dead set on saying yes to every opportunity that comes along, what would happen if you said no more often? What would life be like if you said no to the things that don't truly serve your personal and family priorities and left room to yes to the things that do?

The truth about expectations
35:51

"I have high expectations." is a phrase I've heard my entire life, from teachers, parents and even out of my own life. But what does that really mean? In the world of motherhood, having expectations of our children and family can cause more resentment than good, especially when they aren't communicated.

How do you truly create a home that is managed well without demanding unrealistic expectations of yourself and others, and what does unrealistic even mean? How can we learn to let go of control that expectations hold over others and start communicating our needs in a productive way?

5 words and phrases we don't use in our home
27:43

We're not an overly strict household. I'm not an overly strict mother, but when it comes to the words we use in our house, my husband and I are sticklers.

The words and phrases we use matter, and I don't mean swearing. I mean the negative words we've let infiltrate our daily conversations that get passed down to our children. I'm far from perfect but eliminating certain words and phrases have given us the power of positivity and abundance for our family.

We're bringing back Mindset Mondays, and now with a twist. These episodes are 5 minutes or less and just what you need to get a kick-in-the-butt nudge of empowerment for your week.

We use the words happy and fulfilled interchangeably, but they aren't the same. So how can you truly lived a fulfilled AND happy life and motherhood?

My money story
39:52

Money is a loaded topic and one most people stay away from.

But not me.

I love money because I know the true power that can be found when good people have money. As women, we're still playing catch-up and money can feel like an icky topic, especially if we're not the one "bringing home the bacon."

It's still important. I'm here to tell my own winding story and shed some light on the transformation you can make when you become educated about money, your own money issues and what you can do when you face up to the financial situation you're in.

Greed is different than abundance
07:14

We're bringing back Mindset Mondays, and now with a twist. These episodes are 5 minutes or less and just what you need to get a kick-in-the-butt nudge of empowerment for your week.

Wanting more for yourself isn't greedy, so why does it feel that way? Because we've been told our entire lives that giving is more important than taking. But abundance isn't about taking, it's about receiving and the more you receive, the more you can give. This is a short, powerful episode with words that will strike at the heart of this issue: Greed and abundance are NOT the same.

How to create your home's culture and why it's so important
30:24

The way we run our home is so much more than the sum of it's parts. It's more than the cleaning, the cooking, the wiping butts and playing taxi driver to our kids. Much like any other social group, our home is built on the culture we create for it.

On today's episode, I want to take you inside this idea and why spending all of your time focusing and stressing about the minutia of day-to-day homemaking isn't solving the problem. Let's chat about how creating a culture in your home that fits with your values will bring you more joy (and less wanting to huddle in a corner and cry.)

What I wish I had known about homemaking 13 years ago
25:26

They say hindsight is 20-20. I think that phrase was created about motherhood. We go into this season of newness not knowing what to expect, but expecting to know it all. Of course, we don't.

I resisted homemaking for years, or at least the word itself. Embracing it for what it can do for my life has brought me peace and joy beyond measure. Today, I'm traveling back in time and telling my former self what I wish I knew about homemaking and motherhood then.

Q&A: "How do I get my kids to do chores without constantly nagging?"
35:04

We're pulling a question out of the figurative mail bag today for some Q&A action. Today's burning question: "How do I get my kids to do chores without constantly nagging?" It isn't nearly as difficult as we're all making it, but it's going to require more than an expensive chore chart from Etsy and a fancy reward system.

Meal planning 101 (even if you hate meal planning)
33:42

I'll be honest, I have had a love/hate relationship with meal planning over the years. As I dig in deeper to that relationship, I realize it all comes down to the challenge most of us face: overcomplication-itis

Meal planning can be as simplistic or as sophisticated as your heart desires (or your time allows) but let's talk about how to get started and make it easy, even if the thought of meal planning makes you gag.

25:07

Motherhood, like life, is just a series of seasons strung together, but the newness of our seasons can leave us feeling busy, stressed and wondering how to cope.

How to embrace homemaking as a modern, incredible woman
26:07

We are women, hear us roar! Modern women are the raddest, but we also have more on our plates than ever before. We're also absorbing information at more rapid rate now and playing the comparison game with everyone we follow on social media.

With all that's being thrown at us, homemaking is more important than ever before. Now, I'm not talking about that outdated June Cleaver-esque perfectionism we all picture when I say the word "homemaking." Instead, I'm talking today about how we can still embrace running a home, even as the most awesome modern version of you that there is.

The cost of constantly complaining
37:37

The only thing worse than complaining is the complaining about complaining. This episode is complain-free. Instead, this is an honest discussion about the price we're all paying by living our lives through the lens of negativity and complaints.

Complaining is more than just negativity about your situation, it's a grasp for control in the moment. But what is the cost of doing that all the time and what example are we really setting for our children?

15:12

It's Independence Day here in the United States and I'm celebrating the only way I know how: by talking about house cleaning. I'm loads of fun at parties, friends.

Your house, just like your hair, your body, your clothes and anything else you use on a regular basis, will eventually need to be cleaned. Making it a burden rather than just another thing you do is creating undo stress in your life. Today, let's find freedom from the burdens of house cleaning and home management all together.

In this episode, I mention the brand new Mother Like a Boss™ Podcast Directory. Check it out here.

How to deal with criticism and negativity
53:25

I have to admit that it feels like we're drowning in negativity these days and moms are getting the brunt of it. Everyone has an opinion on how you should raise your children and live your life, but are all opinions bad? Is all criticism negative? And how to be sift through the opinions without feeling worse about ourselves?

I'm opening up today about the negativity and criticism I receive in my business and how I've learned to deal with the so-called "haters." What I really want you to take from this episode is how you, the mom who just wants to live her life and love her children, can deal with criticism being hurled your way and decide which is constructive and which is just judgy negativity.

During today’s episode, I also list a series of qualifying questions I go through whenever I feel the critical eye upon me. Here are those questions for your reference:

  • Do I know them?
  • Do they know me?
  • Do I respect them or their opinion?
  • Is their opinion or criticism related to something I’m interested in changing?
  • If this came from someone else, would I feel differently?
  • Why is this triggering me?

The real truth about the "hot mess mom" culture
42:01

Today, I'm getting as honest and real as I can about the pervasive "hot mess mommy" culture that's swept through motherhood over the last few decades, and giving my thoughts on why we at Mother Like a Boss™ choose to take a very different approach to empowering women.

Is it really helping us to be told that motherhood HAS to be a struggle, day- in and day-out? Not that is "can" be a struggle, or "will feel" like a struggle, but that it is absolute and we have no choice in the matter? What if instead, we acknowledged the messy days and messy seasons without creating a culture that perpetuates negativity in motherhood.

Moms deserve a life-jacket, not a boat to circle us round and round telling us that drowning in mom life is just something we should have to accept.

If you're ready for truth and some real mom empowerment, this is your episode, mama.

When good goals go bad
27:40

Not all goals are created equal. We're taught to aim for the stars and reach for the moon, but if what you want out of life doesn't require you to shoot rockets off into space, why are you?

Mothers are led to believe there is one way to do things: one way to run their home, one way to be a mom, one way to do it all. Your aspirations shouldn't reflect what you "think" you should be aiming for. Putting effort into the wrong thing is what makes good goals go bad.

Why motherhood feels like a struggle (and why it doesn't have to be)
25:31

"The struggle is real!" they say, but is it? More importantly, does it have to be a struggle? And as moms, can we have challenging moments and days without being permanent riders on the struggle bus? The answer is yes, yes we can.

Living with an abundant mindset without needing more "stuff"
23:49

We are surrounded by more stuff than ever, but feel more lack than we ever have. Having more can be a convenient way to fill the voids we feel, but that isn't based in abundance.

Having an attitude of plentifulness doesn't mean we have to give in to amassing more stuff just for the sake of having more stuff.

Why we need to stop shaming our way into gratitude
12:09

Gratitude is truly a gateway to a life of joy and fulfillment, but it doesn't need to to something we shame our way into when you're feeling down. We're allowed to feel our feelings. Whether it's frustration, anger, guilt or sadness, our feelings are real. We can use gratitude as an invitation to shift those feelings, not a punishment for not feeling happy.

You have a lot on your plate, mama. Don't I know it. I'm here to give you some truth (as usual) and tell you that those long to-do lists aren't doing you any good. Busy doesn't equal productive and it's time to makeover those long, busy-filled lists.

Why we need homemaking now more than ever
24:47

It is officially time to let go of all the myths and lies we've been believing as homemakers and embrace the finer parts of making a home that don't involve the likes of Pinterest-perfect perfectionism or burdened mothers acting as servants.

In this busy, noisy world, it may be more important than ever to cultivate a space in your life that covers you from the stresses of the outside world. Modern homemakers, unite.

Why I don't live with FOMO
15:37

FOMO: Fear Of Missing Out

I saw that acronym floating around the interwebs last year and admittedly had to Google it (old person, party of 1)

I know the feeling. I've been there. Saying yes to things not because I want to do them, but because I fear missing out. Social media has made us more fearful than ever as moms of missing out (or having our children) miss out on what everything else is experiencing.

But your life doesn't have to be shrouded in fear. What if instead of fearing what you're missing, you embrace what you're experiencing?

Let me be direct here: if you're a mom dealing with anger and feeling nothing but guilt and shame about it, this is THE episode to listen to. As a mother who has felt her fair share of explosive anger come out of no where, my guest helped me see the shame I had been carrying around and how to shift the shame, guilt and anger to something more productive.

Today's guest Natalie Hixson brings vulnerability to a topic that is still taboo. You'll love her willingness to tell her story of anger as it mirrors the stories of so many of us behind closed doors. Her desire to help others become "one no moms" is refreshing and her tips and strategies are sure to give you some guidance if you're feeling that anger bubble up daily.

Does everything in your home have a home?

"A place for everything and everything in its place." A cheesy cliche, but a true statement. You don't have to go label crazy or spend every dollar you have at The Container Store to organize your home enough so that everything has a place to go. Giving your "stuff" a home is the easiest way to repel clutter and creates systems that are easy to follow and sustain in your home.

How to find your mom circle when you've moved away w/ Allie Casazza
49:44

With a ton of giddy excitement, I'm welcoming Allie back to the podcast and our conversation goes deep into the difficulties of finding and keeping friends when you're a mom. We put so much of our energy into our homes, our families and our partners, we're often left with a void that is only filled by true, lasting friendships.

Today, Allie is shining a light on how to make friends not only as a mom, but how to do it when you've moved away. Whether you've chosen to pick up and move across the country, a job has relocated you, or the military has brought you to a variety of new places, this episode is a great encouragement to step out of your bubble to find friendships of all kinds with women who are also looking for another adult to call friend.

Time to put some skin in the game

When was the last time you truly invested in yourself, either with money or time? Moms are notoriously bad at deciding we're worthy of investment, as we're so used to giving to our families.

This episode is one of tough love, but it's all the advice and encouragement I wish someone had given me 13 years ago.

We're worthy of the investment and if you're looking for lasting change, it's time to put some real skin in the game, friend.

Confessions of a "submarine parent"
35:19

I'll admit, I'm not a hoverer. I've always been independent and want to raise my children to be the same. Because of this, I consider myself a submarine parent: you know, the kind that sits below the surface, comes up to check on things every now and then, and goes back below the surface if all is good.

This isn't a judgement of anyone else's parenting style. Quite the opposite. This is the confession of a parent that tries to ride the line between overbearing and totally passive. We're all in this together, mamas. (and no matter how you're parenting your children, we'll all eventually just find ourselves fishing a Cheerio out of someone's nose in the middle of the night.)

How to stop trying to keep up with the (mom) Joneses
28:10

Motherhood is a journey and we're all on our own path, so why are we so focused on what everyone else is doing? We've become obsessed with keeping up with other moms who are trying to keep up with other moms who are trying to keep up with other moms. It's a cycle of comparison that is disempowering and fruitless.

Let's instead compare ourselves to others only when it empowers us to do better and encourages us that if she can do it, so can I. It's time for us to run (or walk, or crawl, or waddle) our own races, mamas.

"I say what I mean and I mean what I say." I've been known to utter this phrase once or twice (or a hundred) times as a mom, but do I really mean it when it comes to myself? We're so busy trying to keep our promises and our word to our children, our spouses and our friends that we let self-integrity fall by the wayside.

If you want to see progress, it's time to hold ourselves to the integrity we expect of others. Say what you mean and mean what you say, mama.

How to clean like a professional house cleaner
29:48

After 11 years in the professional house cleaning biz, I learned a thing or two about how to clean more effectively in less time. It isn't about being the best. I started out knowing absolutely nothing, but over time I learned and it helped me not only build a thriving business, but also keep my own house clean in less time. I'm passing on this knowledge to my own kids now, and onto you.

You don't have to like cleaning to clean like a pro. It's all about making small shifts that have lasting results. Cleaning shouldn't be taking up all your time, friend.

Ep 114 An honest conversation about mommy judgement
37:43

"We are very good judges for the mistakes of others and very good defense lawyers for our own mistakes." -Nicky Gumble

We live in a very judgmental mom culture, where there is always someone to let you know you're making a mistake or the wrong choice. Mommy judgement is alive and well, but what about also discussing our own judgements of others and ourselves?

Today, I want to have an honest and open discussion about judgement. What it really means, where it really comes from and how we can start to pull away from people in our lives that have nothing but judgmental things to say to us on the regular.

But what happens when the new normal makes us feel uncomfortable or even guilty for living a better life? It's time to love the changes you're making and embrace amazing new normal you're creating for your family.

Ep 112 Lessons from a life-long worrier
26:48

Would you consider yourself a worrier? I used to be and call myself a recovering worrier now. After years of deep work, I know now that my worry was caused not by anxiety, but rather the opposite was occurring: my need to control situations was the cause of the anxiety I felt.

Motherhood is a never-ending story of possible worry and overthinking about what could go wrong, but I've found that no amount of that overthinking makes it any easier and rarely do our worst thoughts even come true.

Today's episode is my story and a vulnerable look into how it feels to live inside your own head even when you know logically how ridiculous it is.

11:50

In a world that wants it fast and wants it now, how can we rise above the magic pill culture we're all caught up in? I've seen the effect of what happens when we avoid the journey of life impatiently waiting for the quick fix. Doing the work IS the journey.

In this tough love inspired episode, I'm encouraging you to end your search for the magic pill or guarantee outside of yourself and begin to recognize that the only person in complete control of your success as a mom and woman, is you.

Ep 110 Yes, I practice self-care daily (and you can, too!)
29:34

Self-care is a hot issue right now in the motherhood community and rightfully so. Moms, more than any other, are often left feeling depleted as we care for those around us and make excuses for why we can't care for ourselves. No more.

Today, I want to give you an honest and raw look at what I do everyday to care for myself above anyone else. When I'm at my best, I'm able to give my best. Although my family is my world, I will be with myself until the end and it's important that I care for my needs first so I can truly and without resentment care for others.

In a world where loving yourself fully and showing yourself true gratitude and appreciation is severely lacking (especially for all the mamas out there) let's change the conversation and become moms that show love to others by first showing love to ourselves.

We're nurturers to so many. It's time for us to nurture the moms we are and honor the moms we aspire to be.

Ep 107 Stop making decisions out of fear
13:20

Around every corner in motherhood, there seems to be another thing to be afraid of. But what would our lives look like if we stopped making our everyday decisions out of fear? Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of being judged? We don't have to throw caution to the wind and live recklessly in order to enjoy a life where our decisions are based more on love than on fear.

Instead, I want to help you think of organization as nothing more than a system, something that can be replicated over and over again to give you ease in your life.

So, how do YOU feel about getting organized?

28:49

In a world full of devices, screens, social media and all things internet based, screen time is a hot topic. It's a common question I get, "How should I handle screen time in my home?"

The truth is, I don't have all the answers. All I know is what works for us, and what works for us is setting clear boundaries and making our values clear. This episode is all about how my husband and I handle screen time in our home and what has worked for us.

Ep 103 Letting go of the need to control
19:22

I can't even describe the ways my life positively changed when I started letting go of the need to control everything in my life and started practicing the fine art of surrender. Surrendering isn't about giving up, it's about accepting what is so you can take more inspired action.

I know how easy it is to want to white-knuckle our way through motherhood, trying to control every aspect of our children and home, but if we can let go just for a moment, we will see the beauty in surrender and ease of true beingness.

Ep 102 Minimizing what isn't needed & embracing motherhood with a purpose w/ Allie Casazza
38:30

Let's all just face it: we are living with far too much stuff. Too many things, too many options, too many obligations. My guest today is on a mission to provide more for moms by showing them how to live with less.

Allie Casazza, host of The Purpose Show podcast, founder of the globally-praised course Your Uncluttered home, and one of my best friends in the whole word is bringing a lot of truth and wisdom in this episode.

Allie and I have an open conversation about what it's like to make motherhood your identity, why legalism is dangerous to minimalism and how you can free yourself from obligation by learning how to say NO more often. Join us, mamas.

Ep 101 Being patient with life, ourselves & our children
15:11

They say that patience is a virtue, but did "they" ever have kids?

As a self-proclaimed impatient girl since childhood, I've seen the danger in living from a place of "Next, please. Hurry up!" Impatience strips us of the present moment.

In this episode, I want to encourage you to take a breath and move through life with more ease and less expectation. We'd be amazed what we can enjoy and experience without the wait of expediency looming over our shoulders.

Ep 099 How I'm starting 2019 with purpose
36:21

It's a new year, mamas and that means it's time to reflect on the last 365 days and make plans for the time ahead of us. I'm not into resolutions (as heard in a previous episode.) I concentrate on intentional goals and creating a word of the year that sparks purpose in my life.

Today's episode is dedicated to starting the year off right, without lofty resolutions that won't be met. Instead, I want to talk about purpose and how you can achieve everything you want in your home, your life and your relationships in this brand new year.

Ep 097 No more resolutions (and why I gave them up)
22:28

How is it possible that we're at the end of 2018 already? Didn't we just start?

With the end of the year coming up fast, resolutions are all the rave. Everyone has one (or ten) to set, but inevitably, most will be completely abandoned by February 1. I've fallen victim to it myself, which is why I quit the resolution game many years ago.

I'm a goal oriented person and love to challenge myself to improve and change. While I don't set up resolutions to start off my year, I do create other intentions and plans to keep me on track and growing.

I'm overjoyed to bring you a conversation about such a thing today with Abigail Cannon.

Abigail is the founder of ABCs of Sleep and believes in creating positive sleep habits for both your baby and you.

Ep 094 Running a home when you're self-employed
26:50

It's funny to think that I've been self-employed for as long as I have been a mom and homemaker, but I've raised both my business and kiddos together.

Doing either of those two things can be stressful and time consuming enough, but doing them both at the same time take a bit of strategy (and a whole lot of letting go)

Today, I'm taking you behind the scenes into how I run my home as a self-employed mama with a self-employed husband as well.

Ep 093 The father behind Mother Like a Boss
01:00:57

Back by popular demand is the father like a boss himself, my husband Adam. Creating and leading my mission has been a joy for me, but it isn't always easy. With kids and a home to keep up with, having someone by my side that supports me, loves me and encourages me while also taking on half of the responsibility like a good partner should has been more important than anything.

Join us for a fun, sometimes serious, sometimes silly chat about what it's like from the dad's point of view and how he views homemaking from a father's point of view.

Ep 091 Why I don't balance work & home
25:05

To balance, by definition, means to distribute weight evenly or keep in a steady position so it doesn't fall. That doesn't sound like the kind of carefree and exciting way I want to run my business, run my home or mother my children. I've heard so much about "work/life balance" since I became a mother and entrepreneur and quite honestly, I don't practice it.

Whether you're trying to do it all and exhausting yourself by trying to walk the tightrope of work and home, or children and marriage, or work and personal, this episode is meant to encourage you to embrace the harmony of life through systems, not perfect and equal balance.

42:06

27:17

There is a heartbreaking trend I am seeing: Moms who don’t take the time to live their best lives because they are two wrapped up in helping others live theirs.

So today, I’m making a special announcement for the moms out there that are ready to live their best mom year, free from resolutions they won’t commit to or achieve. Instead, we’re focusing on goals and how you can set them without stress and achieve them on a timeline that works for you.

This is a revolution against resolutions. Join us!

Ep 085 Creating a "sick kit" for your home
20:39

With the holiday season and cooler weather (at least where I live) comes the runny noses and scratchy throats. But no matter what time of year it is, being sick or caring for someone in your home that's sick is no fun.

A "sick kit" should really be called a "well kit" because that's the goal. The goal of a sick kit is to keep the things on hand that we'll need to get well, so we're not making those late night trips to the drug store or scrambling for what we need.

In today's episode, I'm getting into the details of creating a kit or basket for your home and for your family.

22:54

It’s beginning to look a lot like…stress?

I love the holidays so much and the last few months of the year are my favorite, but I also understand that with that comes the possibility of stress and exhaustion.

When I became a mom, I really wanted to make the holiday season as fun for our little family as possible and in the process, took on too many things and let my boundaries fall away. Today, I’m talking about the 4 ways we’re making the holidays way harder than they have to be, and how to approach them with more ease and peace.

Tis the season for joy and love, mama.

Ep 080: 3 ways I'm still a homemaking work in progress
15:09

I’m not perfect and to be honest, I don’t want to be. Running a home and a business simultaneously means there’s a whole lot of room for error and I welcome that. Mistakes are the lessons that allow me to be better, to do better and to teach better.

I’ve come a long way and homemaking is much easier now than it’s ever been before (thank you routines) but I’m still a work in progress. In the spirit of total transparency, I’m sharing 3 of the ways I’m still working on myself. Our goals shouldn’t be to get to a finish line, but instead run the race that feels as enjoyable as possible. That’s life. That’s motherhood.

Ep 074: 5 things I do everyday to keep my home running
22:23

Running my home is something I have come to love more than most things in my life. I get a lot of satisfaction out of living in a home that feels managed and unburdened by stress. There are a few key habits I've formed that help me do that.

Today, I'm pulling back the curtain and sharing 5 things I do everyday (ish. Everyday-ish...) that keep my home running like a well-oiled machine and not like my '93 Toyota Tercel. These habits have been formed over time, after a lot of trial and error. They keep us on track as a family and me on track as a mom, wife and business CEO.

Ep 071: How to develop a nightly routine you can fall in love with
35:25

I have a pretty strict philosophy in my home: if it can be done at night rather than in the morning, I'm doing it. I love my nighttime routine with all my heart because it allows me to go to bed, set up for success for the next day before it even begins. I want to make future me proud of present me and not grumpy for having to start the morning off in chaos.

Today, we're talking not only about the importance of having a great evening routine, but how you can start to create one that you can stick to and fall in love with.

Ep 070 From pregnant college dropout to mom boss CEO
01:22:02

I took a very deep breath as I hit publish on this episode. I’m raw, I’m vulnerable, I’m speaking my truth and telling my story. My journey from a young and naive 22 year old pregnant college drop out to mom boss CEO now has not been without it’s issues and hurdles. In fact, the path has been littered with roadblocks and navigating them has taught me the true meaning of grace.

My story is an important part of my greater mission to reach moms where they are now and empower them to be the best version of themselves. I hope you hear my words (through held back tears at many points) and let them inspire you to go forth in your mom journey with confidence.
